The Creed Certification Course

The Office of Religious Education will offer a certification course on The Creed presented by Fr. Jared Rodrigue at Mary, Queen of Peace. Courses are offered for those working on catechist certification or anyone who is interested in furthering their understanding of our Catholic faith. 

Summary of this course: "This synthesis of faith was not made to accord with human opinions, but rather what was of the greatest importance was gathered from all the Scriptures, to present the one teaching of the faith in its entirety. And just as the mustard seed contains a great number of branches in a tiny grain, so too this summary of faith encompassed in a few words the whole knowledge of the true religion contained in the Old and New Testaments." (St. Cyril of Jerusalem, as cited in CCC, no. 186)

We profess our statement of beliefs every time we pray the CREED. Explore anew the history of our CREED and its profound relevance of each statement in the CREED to our lives as Jesus' disciples.

This is a five-part course:
Thursday, April 12th
Thursday, April 19th

Miracles DO Happen!

Lafayette, Louisiana – Fullness of Truth invites you to explore the miraculous! “Miracles Do Happen!” will occur May 4th-5th, 2018 at St. Pius X Catholic Church in Lafayette, Louisiana. Come hear dynamic presentations on key supernatural encounters throughout the ages with Our Risen Lord Jesus, His Blessed Mother Mary, and with His Saints and Angels, and other examples of the otherwise, when devoid of faith, incomprehensible. Miracles are unspeakable gifts from Almighty God, granting the Faithful mere foretastes of the glory of Heaven. Even today, nearly 2000 years after His Ascension, Our Lord still allows miracles to affirm us in His abiding, ever-present Love.

Speakers include: Msgr. Eduardo Sanchez (Postulator for the cause of canonization of St. Juan Diego and Our Lady of Guadalupe image expert from Her Shrine in Mexico City); Michael O’Neill (known to Catholic radio/TV as “The Miracle Hunter”); and John Iannone (Holy Shroud Task Force and author). Come hear captivating presentations and the scientific evidence supporting miraculously inexplicable Catholic treasures such as St. Juan Diego’s tilma, the Shroud of Turin, Eucharistic miracles, Incorruptible Saints, and many other supernatural manifestations. 

Our conference speakers will provide well-documented, photographic, and scientifically-tested evidence by reputable experts, and as a result, we’ll see science, faith, and the supernatural converge. Hear the dramatic stories, and examine the evidence yourself of Eucharistic miracles, the Incorruptible Saints, the mysterious Shroud of Turin, the beautiful image of Our Lady of Guadalupe on St. Juan Diego's tilma, and much more! This conference will not only present you with many extraordinary manifestations plainly perceptible to the senses, yet beyond explanation, but will also intensify your intimate bond with Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Holy Catholic Church. Don’t miss it!

Fullness of Truth celebrates its 18th year bringing the top Catholic speakers, authors, theologians, and evangelists to conferences throughout Texas and Louisiana.

Faith & Marriage Retreat

The Willwoods Community is blessed to be able to work with the St. Joseph Abbey Christian Life Center as a place to host our retreats. Each retreat is led by peer couple facilitators and a priest. Retreats begin on Saturday morning and end on Sunday after lunch. If you are traveling a far distance or if you would just like to start your weekend getaway earlier, you can make arrangements with us to arrive on Friday evening.

Purpose

Our Married Couples Retreats are a great opportunity for couples to break away from the daily struggles and tasks and spend time rejuvenating and enriching their marriage.

“Marriage is linked to faith, but not in a general way. Marriage, as a union of faithful and indissoluble love, is based upon the grace that comes from the triune God, who in Christ loved us with a faithful love, even to the Cross. Today we ought to grasp the full truth of this statement, in contrast to the painful reality of many marriages which, unhappily, end badly. There is a clear link between the crisis in faith and the crisis in marriage. And, as the Church has said and witnessed for a long time now, marriage is called to be not only an object but a subject of the new evangelization.” (Pope Benedict XVI)

The Grounds

The Abbey is located on a 1,200-acre site four miles north of Covington, LA. The beautiful, lush and holy grounds provide each couple opportunities for quiet and reflective freedom.

Accommodations

The Christian Life Center can accommodate 23 couples. Each couple will be given their own private bedroom and bathroom. Guest rooms, chapel, lounge, library and dining room are all located in the same building.

Cost

There are no fees for the Married Couples Retreat. A suggested donation with deposit is welcomed to help us cover expenses. Those who are able to give more than the suggested donation, please do so. Those of more limited means may give whatever they can. Suggested donation, including the $50.00 deposit, is $275.00.

Divine Mercy Sunday

The Archdiocese of New Orleans and The Apostles of The Divine Mercy cordially invite you to celebrate the grace-filled Feast the Second Sunday of Easter, or of The Divine Mercy at St. Joseph Church at 1802 Tulane Ave., New Orleans on April 8, 2018.

Priests will be available for Confession beginning at 1:00 pm until Mass time. Mass at 3:00 pm with Archbishop Emeritus Alfred Hughes as celebrant. Eucharistic Adoration and Rosary will begin at 1:30 pm. The Chaplet of The Divine Mercy will be sung at 2:30 pm. There will be a blessing with a first class relic of St. Maria Faustina and a life-size image of Jesus, The Divine Mercy, will be available for veneration.

In response to the request of Jesus to St. Faustina, The image of Jesus, The Divine Mercy, is to honored and venerated on the Feast of Mercy. It is a visual reminder of all that Jesus did for us through his Passion, Death, and Resurrection...and a reminder also that we are to trust in Him and be merciful to others in return.
Jesus promised St. Faustina that those who received Holy Communion in a state of grace on Divine Mercy Sunday would receive"the complete remission of sins and punishment"(Diary 699). The theologian who examined St. Faustina's writings for the Holy See, Rev. Ignacy Rozycki, explained that this is the promise of a complete renewal of baptismal grace, and in that sense it is like a "second Baptism." Fr. Rozycki wrote:"...the remission of all sins and punishment is only found in the sacramental grace of Baptism. In the promises cited, Christ made the remission of all sins and punishment contingent on the reception of Holy Communion on the Feast of Divine Mercy. In other words, in this regard, He raised [the Holy Communion on Divine Mercy Sunday]
to the rank of a second Baptism. It is obvious in order to effect a complete forgiveness of sin and the punishment the Holy Communion received on the Feast of The Divine Mercy must not only be partaken of worthily, but it must also fulfill the basic requirements of The Divine Mercy devotion. However, received unworthily, without trust in Divine Mercy and devoid of some deed of mercy toward neighbor, it would be a contradiction of devotion to The Divine Mercy. instead of the exceptional grace, it would bring on the recipient the Divine Justice...".


"Our Lord's promise of complete forgiveness is a reminder that He is truly present and truly alive in the Eucharist, filled with love for us and waiting for us to turn to Him with trust. it is also a call for us to be washed clean through Confession and Holy Communion-no matter how terrible our sins-and begin our lives again."

Jesus requested that the Feast of The Divine Mercy be preceded by a novena consisting of the recitation of the Divine Mercy Chaplet. The chaplet can be said anytime, but the Lord specifically asked that it be recited as a novena, especially on the nine days before the Feast of The Divine Mercy. And He promised, "By this Novena (of Chaplets) I will grant every possible grace to souls."(Diary 796)

St. Bernadette Lenten Mission

St. Bernadette Catholic Church in Houma will hold a 2-night Lenten mission presented by Dr. Tom Neal from Notre Dame Seminary College on March 27th & 28th.

Each night will begin with mass @ 6pm with Fr. Andre' Melancon presiding, followed by the presentations. The theme for the mission is "What Wondrous Love: The Paschal Triduum" Night 1 will be 'Jesus, God in Search of Man' and night 2 will be 'Jesus, Love to the End.' Through this mission we hope to attain a greater appreciation of the love and mercy that God poured out to us through His Only Son, Jesus Christ.

Come, listen, reflect and pray on these two nights, so that we may reverently walk the Triduum of Jesus' Passion and Death on the Cross with a refreshed sense of hope, a heart filled with gratitude and in joyful anticipation of the Easter glory!
